There isn't one and there won't ever be one due to the security in the OS, no app can access the data of another app because of sandboxing. The only way to manage files is either through a PC or via the Hubs on the phone itself.

Limitation Please read it!
Windows phone has some limitations which prevent third party applications from accessing parts of files system. You cannot access video files, music files, Document folder. So, until Microsoft open it, please do not ask us to implement this feature. It is impossible right now.
SD Card has even more restrictions. You can not access images, video and document files. You cannot access any files not registered with Pocket File Manager.
